    When my wife and I talked about names if we ever had twins, I suggested Luke and Leia if they were boy and girl. She did not approve.

    I like that too! Twins don't run in either of our families, but he did say Luke was an "ok" potential baby name.

    Kinda low key, TBH.

    I guess it would be to go see Steele Saunders record a podcast in Brooklyn to a crowd. Ronnie Chieng was hilarious.

    I precariously made by hand a full Princess Leia costume for my drama exam and acted out the 'obi-wan you're my only hope' monologue at the beginning of episode IV, the A grade made it worthwhile though

    I've been in a k-zone magazine for winning the largest star wars collection contest, and I won a tie fighter toy for it.

    I've done many geeky Star Wars things. ;)
    The biggest was a trip to San Francisco last year for a tour of Lucasfilm headquarters at the Presidio, followed up the next day by a tour of Rancho Obi Wan and on day 3 a tour of Skywalker Ranch and Skywalker vineyards. For me and the 3 others who went it was the trip of a lifetime.

    'Congratulations on having so much Star Wars stuff . . . here's some more Star Wars stuff.' :D

    Maybe you can start your own Rancho Obi-Wan someday :)

    Thats exactly my thoughts too! Well I mean it wasn't that big of a collection back then (Definentally not big enough for a Rancho Obi-Wan anyway), now its gotten alot bigger and I reckon I only won it because not many other people entered.

    Does going to Star Wars Celebration count?

    Besides that, there was the time I walked around a mall dragging several shopping bags full of Star Wars merch (shirts, Funko POPs, big Lego boxes) during Triple Force Friday weekend last year.

    I also frequently greet people with “Hello There” and I tend to recite the entire “I don’t like sand...” monologue anytime I come into contact with the stuff. I mean, it’s just so rough, coarse, and irritating. Not to mention the fact that it gets everywhere. Really, who wouldn’t vividly complain about it any chance they get? :D

    I wrote a whole story about this clone who was stranded on zygerria and became a slaver. Oh, and I bought a Vader costume and wore it to the premiere of the force awakens, though it sucked because I couldn’t see very well.

    Went to Walmart at midnight a couple of months before Revenge of the Sith came out when all new star wars merchandise was being stocked and sold. Brand new items related to Revenge of the Sith
